lots of hardware, bolts, nuts, washers, little switches, fan, little motor. Give the big transformer to your local ham radio operator. All the magnetrons I've removed were easily disassembled by removing 4 self-tap screws. Slide off the frame and heat sink fins to remove the magnets. Pry open the (filament filter) can to get the rf coils (if you can use such things). Metal reclaim the remainder. Most have safety glass in the door if you can use that size.
I agree, we need to let our kids learn by doing! I would warn the kids that those magnets have a real affinity for each other, and will really hurt with a small finger between them!

You know I graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering and had been working for a few yeras. Nobody ever felt the need to tell me about this TV discharge thing. I discharged a 'dead' TV the hard way...

You needed to take a course in repair!
I never got shocked from a picture tube, but once, when I was being careful, I must have made a mistake and gotten 2KV, because I jumped back 10 feet with a dislocated shoulder. It hadn't been out in 8 years, and I thought it was healed (after 10 previous dislocations.) Witihin 3 months it was coming out 4 times in one week, and I had to have surgery. Good doctor. No problems since.

Yeah, I had a hard work summer job that helped my shoulder a lot. But it wasn't enough to resist 2000 volts.
